    Israel is threatening more parts of the Olso Accord, who knows what. But they already violated many of them.

    Oslo agreement was a disaster. We should cancel it, no matter what the Palestinians decide to do.

    You don't respect it at all and violate it most of the time. So technically you're right, it's basically useless, since Israel won't follow international law. :cool:

    And Hamas doesn't either.

    If Hamas wishes us to respect Oslo, and international law, they need to stop targeting civilians in Israel.

    As long as they do so, you can not wave "international law" as a safe card. Since Hamas itself laughs when hearing of it.

    Israel refuses to recognize Hamas as the governing body of Gaza.

    Yet they hold Hamas responsible for any rockets fired out of Gaza.

    How is this? Shouldn't that mean they recognize Hamas as the government?

    Hamas is calling for Israel to respect the laws of "Lus Naturale". Yet they do not respect it themselves.

    That's my point.

    "Israel refuses to recognize Hamas as the governing body of Gaza."

    I am not sure this is correct. We know who rules Gaza and who makes the decision.
